Welcome to the NYUAD Library

Welcome to the NYUAD Library! Our facility provides spaces for engagement between faculty and students, complemented by quiet areas for concentration and contemplation. 

Research Services in Abu Dhabi

Stop by the Library Information Desk with your questions, or contact us to schedule a one-on-one session with a librarian regarding in-depth research needs. Librarians are available to teach you how to find information for your research, navigate electronic resources and learn about resources in your subject area. 

Special Collections

Our goal is to provide access to rare and unique primary sources to support, enrich, and augment the research interests of students and faculty, and to document the history of NYUAD through the collection and preservation of archival material.

As our collections grow, we welcome suggestions from the NYUAD community. Please get in touch with any comments, concerns, or suggestions by emailing

Campus Center (C2), Floor 3
We are located in the back of the library, between Library Administration and the Campus Technology Center

During the summer months, materials are available by appointment only. Please e-mail Archives and Special Collections to schedule an appointment.

For more information, please see our website

Reserving Study Space in the Library

The NYUAD Library does not reserve study space. We operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is quiet study space and group study rooms located on the mezzanine level of the library.

You can request whole items be shipped to Abu Dhabi from New York, or request article/chapter scans from items owned by Bobst or Courant libraries. Whole items typically arrive within 7 days of the request; article/chapter scans of available items typically arrive within 24 hours.

You can also request materials via E-ZBorrow for books that are not available in the NYUAD Library, Bobst Library, or Courant Library. This includes books that are currently checked out.

If you need something (books, journal articles, CDs, DVDs etc) and can't find it in our libraries, you can request it via Inter-Library Loan.
